Dulce -Outreach

Fall 2023 Outreach Tour

PCPA Outreach Department is proud to present the Fall 2023 tour Dulce by Ramón Esquivel

A boy named Memo learns that Abuelita, his beloved grandmother, has died. Unsure of how to feel, Memo decides to find Abuelita’s hidden stash of candy. But his mother and sister are too caught up in their own grief to help, so Memo turns to an unexpected ally in his search for the dulce: Abuelita herself! Memo journeys with Abuelita through her memories as a child in Mexico and a young immigrant in the USA, and he discovers that the true treasure Abuelita left for him is familia.

A bilingual play for young audiences and families, Dulce draws on both magical realism and slapstick comedy to tell a story about cultural identity, intergenerational ties, and learning how to say goodbye.

Dulce was featured at the 2018 Austin Latino New Play Festival and the 2019 Sin Fronteras Festival and Convening for Latinx Theatre for Young Audiences, Latinx Theatre Commons.
